Kevin Owens Says The Independent Scene Influences WWE

Ahead of his huge Hell in a Cell match Sunday, Kevin Owens spoke to ESPN for a new interview. Check out a few highlights below, and the full interview at this link.

Vince McMahon:

Paul Heyman Nominates The ECW Audience For WWE Hall Of Fame

"There's a lot of things in my WWE career I'm very proud of, things I accomplished that not many people get to live out in their careers. I've done it in a relatively short period of time, so that's really cool. But being in the ring with Vince McMahon and the ensuing situation there was definitely at the top of the list of things I'll look back on when I'm older and I'm not wrestling anymore. When I was 11 years old, I started watching WWE. He's been the figurehead of this company. He's been the man behind the thing I was obsessed with for years and years and years."

Indy scene influences WWE:

"I do think the independent scene does influence the WWE, in terms of in-ring style, a little bit. I don't think that's positive, to be honest. I see guys left and right, doing moves and stuff like that, that they might have seen on the independent wrestling scene, and I don't necessarily think that that's cool. On the other side, if I do watch independent wrestling whenever I have time, which is not a lot, to be honest, I do see guys there doing stuff that you see on WWE every week, so everybody takes from somewhere."
